I was looking for a comfortable place to stay that was near Union Station as my niece and I were traveling into the city via Amtrak. This hotel offered a great rate and value and met our needs well. The staff was helpful. The room was large and the bathroom very nice as well - no tub, but beautiful shower.... More

I was in town for a bachelor party. All of the other guys were staying with family, so I had to get a hotel for myself. I chose the Blake based on location and price. Everything went very smooth. The layout is simple. The location is great. Kasey's Tavern is just down the street. Street noise on 6th floor was... More

The folks who work at this hotel are friendly and eager to help out. The guy who impressed me the most was named Showtime (for GOOD reason!). He got a whole car full of baggage up to my room in one trip and helped immensely with directions to venues and area knowledge. He also personally brought up a hand held... More

My husband and I are Bluegreen owners and used our points to stay at this hotel. We were very pleased with our stay. We arrived in the pouring rain and the doorman immediately grabbed towels for us before we checked in. Care has obviously been taken to update the interior of the hotel, which was nice. The bathroom and bedroom... More

This location is great for Chicago. A couple of block from the lake and easy access to everything. The room we got was an upgrade and was very spacious, facing the front of the building on the 4th floor. No room service or breakfast. The adjacent cafe Meli is where you can buy your breakfast or dine. A bit pricey,... More

The reception at the Hotel Blake in Chicago was quite friendly and courteous. I'm not sure if it was engineered specifically, but the two young ladies working the front desk had a great collegial relationship and treated us more like old friends than new customers. It was great to find that balance between personal and professional rapport that makes you... More

I come from the hotel industry so I like to believe I know something about service. I received top notch service here, especially by a front desk associate/supervisor named Katherine.

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
